San Diego Cosmetic Surgeon

Laser Hair Removal

Imagine for a moment all of the time you spend every week shaving, waxing, tweezing, threading, (and whatever other technique is trendy at the moment). What if you could remove unwanted hair in just a few hours? You can with laser hair removal, an increasingly popular procedure for those that want longer lasting results.

While some may shy away from the thought of a laser treatment, remember that tweezers, shaving, waxing, and hair-removal creams are effective only for a few days. Three days after you shave your legs, you have to shave them again. It’s a vicious cycle that the San Diego plastic surgeon can help you stop with laser hair removal.

Laser treatments can be used on the face, neck, arms, stomach, back, legs, and even more sensitive areas such as the bikini line.

Our San Diego Cosmetic Surgeon is Efficient and Effective

The procedure can take anywhere from 1-2 hours, sometimes more depending on the size of the area being treated. The surgeon will first apply a topical cream to numb the area, followed by the application of the heated light that removes the hair follicles.

One of the most common misconceptions regarding laser hair removal is that it is electrolysis. The two procedures are completely different; laser hair removal is significantly faster both in time during the procedure and time before seeing results.

Dark hair and course textured hair are the best types of hair to be removed by lasers. But irregardless of your specific hair or skin type, contact the San Diego plastic surgeon to review your treatment options.
